their new machinery and the re

Commencement at Gervais.
On Thursday, June 28, at 7:30
p.m. the commencement exercises
at St. Scholastica's convent school
will take place. On the preceding
Fnday the pupils will be examined
in their respective studies. The
school has had a largo and steady
attendance throughout thescholastic
year. A highly interesting pro
gram will bo presented on the oc
casion. Overran With Thistles.
Unless the writer is greatly mis
taken, thero is an ordinance on the
city statute books requiring all prop
erty owners to cut down thistles on
their property, and tho street super
visor to do the same in the public
streets. Tho street and adjacent
property, botween Front and Water
streets, on Union, is becoming badly
grown over by thistles, and they
should be attended to.

A Question for tho Board of Trade to
Answer. A "Greengrocer" in
The writer is in receipt of a letter
from Maj. "Win. Manning, of Cau
yonville, this state, who with his
wife and son, is on a tour of the
eastern states. The letter is written
from Jonesboro, Tennessee, where
they are visiting friends.
In the course of his letter he tells
the following story, which, he truly
says, should show to our board of
trade the first question to be answer
ed by them. "While in Cincinnati,
where they remained several days,
they passed bytho store of a green
grocer, in whose stock some large
watermelons from the south nttracted
their attention. Stopping to enquire
where tho melons were from, a short
chat ensued, which showed plainly
that tho major was not a Cincinnat

caused the inquisitive greengrocer

a "greengrocer" in more senses of

A Speculation Party.
Last evening, Mr. and Mrs. A. T,
Gilbert entertained a number of
their friends at their elegant resi
dence on Water and Main streets, in
honor of Mr. A. E. Holgate, of Day

ing was "speculation," and after its
close, aud tho discussion of tho
usual delightful refreshments, danc
ing was indulged in until a late
hour. There were present: Mr. and
Mrs. A. T. Gilbert, Dr. and Mrs.
J. N. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. J. M.

Sho does not think of returning
to Oregon soon, as she thinks some
of studying her art in New York

in Grand Rapids, and has recolved
many complimentary notices by tho

Mansfield, a Prisoner at the
This morning after the hours for
work had arrived, and whllo the
prisoners in tho state poultontiary
were quietly pursuing their daily
duties, William Mansfield, a prisoner
and a desperate character, entered
the chapel from tho yard, and on
being asked what was wanted i
declared that ho wasn't colnc to
work any longer. He was told by
tne guard iu the chapel that he
would have to co to work, that such
conduct could not be allowed. Mans
field said ho did not care, that ho
wasn't going to work, aud that was
all thero was of it. The warden
then called in Guard Whitlow who
was ordered to arrest Mansfield.
Mausfield stood at bay, rcfusiuc to
surrender, remarking, "I'll kill you,
g d d n you, if you touch me."
Warden Whitlev then nolnted his
gun at Mansfield ordering him to
tnrow up tils hands, saying that he
was disobeying all rules of the in
stitution, and that his entire action
Mansfield said, "I know it. and
don't give a g d d n if it is."
Ho was airain ordered to throw un
his hands, but ho only dared tho
guard to shoot him.
After a little further deliberation,
the cuard steadilv nolnted his cun
at Mansfield, who showed no signs
of surrender, saw that further wait
ing or kindness toward Mansfield
was only inimical to good order,
pulled the trigger a Hash, and
Mansfiold dropped to the iloor, dead.
News of the shootlnsr was im
mediately sent to Sheritr Miuto and
Justice O'Donald and tho latter
summoned a jury, and went out to
investigate tho case. At this hour
they have not returued.
Mansfield was the worst char
acter confined in theprisou,xrobably,
and was one of tho leaders iu tho
famous prison break of 1883. Ho
was indicted then for murder in the
first degree, along with one Smith,
another of tho leaders of that break,
but they saved themselves on a flaw
in the papers, orsomething,in court.
The case was tested against Smith,
and on tho failure to convict him,
tho case against Mansfield was not
Ho has murdered several persons
in Eastern Oregon, and when
searched this morning, after being
killed, a long butcher knifo was
found in his right sleeve. It is evi
dent now, as it was to tho guard
then, it was either the life of tho
prisoner had to bo taken, or ho
would have killed a guard.
Whitley, tho guard who killed tho
prisoner, is a Polk county man, nnd
